THE leader of Whitby’s Slimming World group met comedian Justin Lee Collins at an awards ceremony.

Susan Howard managed to cuddle up with the TV personality most famous for The Sunday Night Project, Justin Lee Collins: Good Times and Bring Back at the Slimming World’s annual awards ceremony to celebrate its most successful slimmers.

Susan runs weekly Slimming World groups in Whitby Leisure Centre every Tuesday and was thrilled to meet the funny man and TV presenter at the glitzy event in Birmingham.

She said: “Meeting Justin Lee Collins was the perfect ending to what’s been another amazing year for Slimming World.

“At this time of year lots of people will be pledging to slim down and shape up and we’d love anyone who wants to make their New Year’s resolution a reality to come join us at the Whitby Leisure Centre. Even if they’ve struggled to stick to resolutions in the past, there’s no need to be put off.”

And the TV funnyman had only good things to say about Susan too.

He said: “I know only too well that slimming isn’t easy. Having a great support network around you makes all the difference. Having met Susan I think people in Whitby are incredibly lucky to have such a warm and friendly person running a Slimming World group on their doorstep.”
